It`s always been 45 degrees in Qld; even the most arsehole copper up Mt. Glorious will say that.

Always has been 45 degrees from the rear axle, the funny bit is where it says,
"2.1.9 Mudguards
Mudguards must be fitted to all wheels, including sidecar wheels (refer to Figure LL1 for details of mudguard construction and location). Each mudguard must be at least as wide, over its entire length, as its respective wheel and tyre."

I'm not aware of any regulations regarding altering fuel tanks on vehicles.
We fit big petrol tanks in 4wds every second day at work. To the best of my knowledge that is legal. If I can put 360 litres worth of fuel tank in my cruiser surely a 28 litre tank on my DRZ is ok??

The issue came up down at my local bike shop, while getting a roadworthy for one of the other bikes. He reckons unless it has an ADR compliance stamp or similar, it could be an issue.

I've emailed the maker, but in the meantime was wondering if blokes had any real world stories out there.
There's no ADR compliance stamp for gas tanks.

Many oem tanks are plastic.

I run IMS and acerbis plus oem Honda - never any questions.

Law has to prove the gas tank was to blame for the damage.

It's pretty hard.

I'm possibly starting to show my age here? Remember those useless floppy rubber things the bike shop would fit to the back of your bike, which magically fell off after it left the vic rds office? From memory, every bike shop had a couple, I remember in 86 the shop fergot to remove mine and it wrapped itself around the wheel. They were furious because they only had the one and couldn't register any more bikes that day. Last time I had a cop give me grief over it was about 5 years ago, possibly because he couldn't find anything else wrong with the bike and his small penis was a bit itchy? I'd just assumed it was still hanging around in the one day we'll give you a hard time over this because we need to justify our existence basket?

I asked the question at the local dept of trans office (no inspection station that does bikes local),the person at the office said they do a 25 item or so check of bike when they view the vin/engine number,basically a roadworthy according to them.

Agree with you mate I have been a rego inspector for about 30 years and I have never seen an ADR stamp on a tank of any motorcycle.
